“I Do” a Tight Wedding and Favours Budget

Brides and grooms are facing a tough go in this economy, as are their parents. Although the number of weddings appears to be hardly slowing, attention to budget limitations are now heightened. Typically, couples-to-be seek out the help of family to help cover wedding expenses. Yep, the parents who have typically said “I Do” to funding your dream fairytale wedding are struggling to recover from a recession that has seen a good chunk of their child’s “wedding reserves” wiped out.

Cutting Back on Wedding Costs

With some effort brides, typically the wedding organizers, are finding creative ideas to save on wedding costs. Perhaps the release of doves at the conclusion of the wedding ceremony will go, as might driving away in an exotic sports car (sorry grooms!). Many couples still feel that giving an inexpensive keepsake favour to reception guests is still a must. But how about that wedding budget if you don’t have access to wholesale wedding favors or an aunt that owns a bridal shop!?

Elegant Yet Cheap Wedding Favour Ideas

Whether you need 20 wedding favours or 300, there are plenty of choices that won’t leaving you feeling cheap! Of course, I’m not suggesting you run out to the nearest dollar store for cheap wedding favors as giveaways that will leave guests saying, “Oh…(long pause)…thanks”. OK, they wouldn’t be obvious but you do want to make a great impression – after all, it’s your wedding. So what are these great ideas? Here’s some great favors – ideal for weddings or as bridal shower favors – that typically sell for under $3.00 Canadian each and their some of my personal favourites at any price!
